You all know about our judgement-free campaign by now. Sometimes, I find, that other mothers aren’t nearly as judgmental of me as I am of myself. I am my own worst critic. No one else but me. [Note: I'm sure that other mothers may judge me, but their opinion of me doesn't matter.]

- When you forget to send a snack to school or pick up your child late
- Or just make a boneheaded move because you’re overwhelmed or distracted
